Recipe Ingredients for Corn and Crab Chowder

1/3 cup chopped onion
3 scallions, finely diced
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
4 bouillon cubes
3 cups water
15 oz. (1 can) corn, with water
1 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
1 tsp hot sauce
12 oz. (2 cans) crabmeat
1/3 cup half and half
2 tbsp cilantro

Recipe Directions for Corn and Crab Chowder

  1. Add butter, onion, scallions, and celery to a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add flour and stir until the vegetables are coated. Cook another minute.

  3. Add the water and the bouillon cubes and whisk until the flour and bouillon cubes are completely dissolved. Add the corn, Old Bay, and hot sauce. Stirring occasionally, allow to come up to a simmer.

  4. Remove from heat. Using a submersion blender, blend the soup until it's creamy. If you don't have a submersion blender, you can allow the soup to cool a bit and blend it in a regular blender.

  5. Stir in the crabmeat, half and half, and cilantro. Garnish with sour cream and additional cilantro.
